General Description

The EMWSSPeers-A is a 12-item, one-dimensional measure to assess adolescents’ emotional memories of early peer relationships characterized by warmth, safeness and affection. EMWSSPeers-A presented very good internal consistency, and construct, convergent, divergent and incremental validities. By allowing the examination of the role played  by memories  of positive  peer relationships  on  adolescents’ psychological  adjustment, the  EMWSSPeers-A may  be potentially useful for future model testing and for the assessment of Interventions.
